But there is not even a single complaint from the boys for they generally get the feeling that the long arm of the law would not be favourable to them if they seek its help.
Differences over status in society is probably the most common reason for a break-up. In the recent past, there have been cases of middle and lower middle- class women seeking police assistance.
Slapping a cheating case under IPC section 415 is the only option available to deal with such cases. But most of the time the policemen hold counselling sessions for the estranged couples and they have been successful. ‘In 40 per cent of the cases, we have helped them arrive at an amicable solution,’ says the police officer.
A break-up is not as bad as people would imagine. The more you are in love with your partner, the more wrong you are about how upset you are going to be when the ties turn sour, says Vidya, a city-based counsellor.
Many women who come for counselling say that the men feel that a relationship would go on forever come what may and that view makes them dominating and overhaughty, she says.
At some point, lovers who become possessive about each other quarrel for every single reason and finally break their relationships, she adds.
